Mid Century Modern TV Console
My first foray into large cabinet making. It is just over 6' long which meant I had to do a lot of tool moving in my small basement shop in order to make the miter cuts. I came up with the design by searching Danish modern and mid century modern on the internet. In the end it was a combo of a Foureyes project mixed with a few styles I came across on pinterest. Since the drawers were going to be hidden by solid wood fronts I built them with pocket screws. When you build a project to a purpose it is a nice feeling when everything fits into it perfectly in the end. I am happy with the end result but hand planing and shaping the solid wood drawer front pulls was the highlight of the project for me.
I cut the miters by burying the blade on my table saw into a sacrificial fence. Worked great for the 6’ long pieces. Assembly was a breeze. I borrowed a friend’s domino. What a fantastic machine. Not heading into the cabinet business so I will stick to borrowing that very expensive tool.
It is made from maple veneer plywood with solid maple edging, solid maple drawer fronts, painted MDF sliders and was finished with super blonde shellac.
